When the story of a man who killed a family, including an 8-year-old child, because his neighbors asked him to stop shooting an AR-15 so their baby could sleep, the media could hardly be any more excited. This sounded like the perfect story about “American gun culture”. Hollywood producers and writers began scribbling notes.
But the shooter and most of his victims turned out to be illegal aliens living in one of the larger hubs for illegal aliens. And the shooter had been deported 4 times. If only we had some sort of law about illegal migration.
The man on the run for allegedly killing five people inside their Texas home has been identified as a Mexican national who was reportedly deported four times.
Francisco Oropesa, 38, has been apprehended and deported by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement was first deported in March 2009, sources told ABC News.
Oropesa was then deported again in September 2009, and another time in January 2012 after he was convicted in Montgomery County for driving while intoxicated, sources said.
He was last deported in July 2016, and it remains unclear what his current immigration status is or when he came back into the country.
Faced with these inconvenient facts, leftists pivoted to complaining about the term “illegal alien”.
But illegal aliens are not allowed to own or buy firearms. The vaunted “gun control” laws already on the books failed to stop Oropesa from owning a gun just as they failed to stop him from constantly invading America.
Laws don’t work unless you proactively enforce them. And the best way to stop crimes from happening is to keep criminals locked up or out of the country.
Democrats failed to secure the border and have done everything possible to protect illegal aliens. Had Oropesa been kept out of America, his 5 victims would be alive today.
